I wonder if i can ever really become a Lagosian. Am a kwaran, grew up in Northern Nigeria, now married and settled in Lagos. We all hear that Lagos is fast paced but really , u need to live it to believe it.

My first Impression about lagos was, God, This is a smelly, noisy, polluted state. It takes some getting used to. The blaring horns, loud music, just name it. I had constant headache for a week. It was crazy. Now two years later, am still getting used to it.

Now lagos women are fashion crazy, from the Corporate big gals to the tomato sellers. Only it has levels. LOL. While the big gals patronise the high profile saloons for their beauty treat, the small gals [lol] have their beauty hawkers to fullfil their needs.I Have seen one fix nails and eyelashes and i was like wow. Lagos is peculiar.

Being a Mama

Being a mother is such a wonderful thing.
Being a mother makes u do things u would not ordinarily do.
Only motherhood will make u think it is normal to examine your baby's poop and not find it disgusting.
Only motherhood will make you wake up like 5 times in the course of the night and not think it is an inconvinience.
Only motherhood will make you forfiet that pair of shoes you have been eying for months for the latest toy.
Only motherhood will make you view certain transgressions on your privacy as normal.
Being a mother is a state of being that can only be experienced by a mother [biolohical or not].
Being a mother is just too much. Yeah and i will say that again.
